Coverity Releases New Version of Enterprise Development Testing Platform
|Richard Harris in Enterprise Wednesday, January 8, 2014|
Coverity has announced the availability of the Coverity Development Testing Platform 7.0, the next-generation of its software testing platform.
The platform enables testing for cloud, mobile and web-based application development in Enterprise IT organizations. The new version of the Coverity Development Testing Platform is an enterprise-scale solution which combines code analysis, change-aware unit test analysis and policy management across C/C++, Java and C#, three of the most widely adopted programming languages for Enterprise IT application development.
New features in the Coverity platform include the following:
Breadth and depth of C# code analysis
21 new and enhanced C# analysis algorithms further improve the accuracy of defect detection in C# codebases, providing developers with the information they need to quickly troubleshoot and fix critical quality defects, such as resource leaks, concurrency issues and null references.
Expanded Java web application security coverage
New and expanded coverage for the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) Top 10 and Common Weakness Enumerations (CWE) security vulnerabilities in Java applications.
Breadth and depth of Java and C/C++ code analysis
17 new and enhanced analysis algorithms for Java and C/C++ codebases, making it easier than ever to find critical issues that could lead to crashes, inaccurate calculations or unpredictable behavior.
Import critical defects identified by the Coverity platform into SonarQube, a popular open source quality management platform used in Java development, to view and manage a broader range of defects in Java applications within a single workflow.
Security audit views and compliance reporting
New security audit and compliance views and reports within Coverity Connect and Coverity Policy Manager make it easy to zoom into critical security issues identified, fixed and outstanding, as well as report on compliance with regulations and standards such as the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard and the OWASP Top 10.
Expanded Test Advisor workflow integration
New Coverity Test Advisor integrations with the Eclipse and Microsoft Visual Studio IDEs provide developers with intelligence into which unit tests they need to write and run based on the impact of a code change, right from the developer’s desktop. In addition, Coverity Test Advisor has expanded support for unit test analysis on devices that run on the Android and Wind River platforms.
Clang compiler support
The Coverity platform now supports the Clang compiler, which is rapidly growing in popularity for mobile and web application development, and is commonly used in Objective-C and C/C++ software development.
